Not my call

Romans 9:15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

This is a hard verse to read at times.  It can read as if You will do what You want and I don’t get to question it.  I suppose that actually is a big part of it.  I don’t see the big picture whereas You painted it.  I don’t understand everything and never will.  You may reveal some things to me but I’ll never be in a position where I know a fraction of what You do.

This verse also contains a lot of comfort.  You are merciful and compassionate where I’m not.  When it comes to choosing followers, You have much lower standards than I do.  You open the door for everyone that chooses to walk through it.  I’m glad of that, because I don’t think I’d ever meet up to my own entry requirements.

Thanks You Lord that You are full of mercy and compassion.  Thank You for showing them to me.
